Shri Amarnath Yatra 2017

Amarnath Yatra

Amarnath Yatra, the most named pilgrimage tour in India that calls all the devotees towards the famous cave of Lord Shiva in the state of Jammu & Kashmir in the form of white “Shivlingam” made naturally of snow. The pilgrims need to cover the rugged and challenging ways towards the Amarnath Cave, 40m which is surrounded by snowy mountains throughout the year. The cave itself is covered with snow most time of the year except for a short period of time in summer when it is open for the devotees.

The Amarnath Yatra is all about an annual pilgrimage which is made to the Amarnath cave by lakhs of Hindu devotees on the challenging mountainous terrains to catch the mightiest glimpse of an ice stalagmite formed inside the cave. 

Pilgrims visit the holy site during the 45-day season around the festival of Shravani Mela in July–August, coinciding with the Hindu holy month of Shraavana. The beginning of this annual pilgrimage, called the Amarnath Yatra is marked by 'pratham pujan' to invoke the blessings of Shri Amarnathji.
